Ice Breakers

If you could be invisible, where would you go?
To see NKOTB in concert again. Then I would've have to be all embeerassed in front of all the other 12 year olds hollerin' out Joe's name.

What was your favorite book growing up?
I remember loving the book, Rascal by Sterling North. It was about a raccoon. If I ever come across a copy of it, I will snatch it up with supreme delight.

Where is the worst place you've ever had to wait?
In jail. Fo' shizzle.

Name a food that nauseates you.
Spam. Even the word nauseates me.

If you could read minds, whose would you want to read?
My Dad's. The man is a mystery to me.

What is the worst grade you've ever gotten? In what subject?
An F in Physics. The only reason I ever graduated was because I cheated so much in order to pass that one class. [Rachel: thank you and I'm sorry I did that to you.][But really, you were like my Obi-Wan Kenobi. I needed your help. You were my only hope.]

If you could be an animal, what would you be and why?
Eeeaazzy. I'd be a unicorn. Because I would be fascinating and have a glittery horn.

If you were a teacher, what grade would you teach?
Grammar, because I LOVE to diagram a sentence. I like words like "present participle".

How close to first place have you ever gotten in a limbo contest?
Second place. Which falls right after first.

If you decide to play along and answer these too, please please oh please, tell me so I can come read your answers! Thanking you. :)

"I LOVE to diagram a sentence"...I knew we connected on some grammatical level :) My favorite class in college was "diagramming" and that's ALL we did! Mr. Ferstal was our teacher and sometimes he'd let me help teach the class...those were the best days :) it was so much fun!
i know...weird...but now I'm weird with you :P

I think I'm going to have to do this tomorrow too.

And too bad you were in Gulf Shores last weekend, because NKOTB was in NOLA! Short drive... ;) Can't help you with the invisibility though.

And I just love the fact that "skank" is one of your favorite words. I have to be more careful saying that one around my little girl than floozy.

I had no idea!!!! (Or did I??? I seriously have lots of missing memories from then.) I'm quite flattered to have been your Obi-Wan Kenobi. And, of course, apology accepted. ;)

*GASP* You liked Joe too?! ;)

Too bad you went to school in America where you were forced to take Physics. I had a 36% average and dropped it two days before the last available drop date. Sadly, it came back to haunt me in college when I had to take a science refresher course. Oh Nelly, was that B-A-D.
